WHAT’S OUR GOAL
To spur dialogue and interest in lifestyles that significantly aid in the reduction of risk factors for our top chronic diseases among future HBCU leaders, staff and faculty. To encourage resolution-centered dialogue regarding food insecurity, access, black and brown veganism and health equity in safe spaces.
We also encourage support of student businesses through free vending while providing free tastings that ae provided by BIPOC, WFPB chefs. We hope to create opportunities for deeper collaborative engagement with HBCU youth around a healthy, flavorful and affordable plant-based lifestyle as well as the promotion of nutritive community re-education where it’s needed most.
